Stephen Fleming comments on Devon Conway’s expulsion due to DRS failure

The IPL’s Giants – Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians – faced off in the 59th match of the present season, only for CSK to destroy their playoffs dream. MI, who were looking to close their tournament on a good note, defeated CSK by five wickets, therefore ending their chances of progressing to the next round. However, if there was one moment that stood out as the game’s talking point, it was Devon Conway’s inability to accept the DRS call due to a power outage at Wankhede.

“It was a little bit unlucky, that it happened at that time. Yeah, we are a bit disappointed, but that’s still part of the game, isn’t it? But yeah, [that] sort of set off a chain of events that were not in our favor. But we should be better than that, it certainly wasn’t a great start,” said Fleming in the post-match conference.

CSK’s top-order failure, particularly the firing of Conway, did not go over well with head coach Stephen Fleming, who described it as “unlucky.” It should be remembered that due to a power outage at the legendary Wankhede Stadium, Conway was unable to move for DRS, and Daniel Sams won the contentious LBW decision against him.

Fleming shed more insight on CSK’s team, saying that they are still learning about their players and that this knowledge would benefit them in the coming games. He also stated that there is usually a very thin line between having a fantastic and a horrible season, so they aren’t too concerned, but will focus on their weak points in the future.
